Ramadan & the Spirit of Prayer and Kindness

Ramadan & the Spirit of Prayer and Kindness

Another year successfully done with our partners at the Turkish Cultural Center. Food, friendship, and acts of charity were shared as we ate together, shared together, and learned together about the spirit of the Holy Month of Ramadan. With today’s Eid al-Fitr , the festival of breaking of the fast, we reflect upon the last 30 days. Eid al-Fitr is an important religious holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide that marks the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting (sawm). The religious Eid is a single day during which Muslims are not permitted to fast. The holiday celebrates the conclusion of the 29 or 30 days of dawn-to-sunset fasting during the entire month of Ramadan. We were so fortunate to have shared an iftar dinner last month, learning about the spiritual importance of kindness, community service, and prayer. These simple things become so much more when we mindfully put ourselves into the work of our own personal spirituality. With all of the horrific happenings that have happened over the last month, we remember even more the need for these sacraments of grace. Blessed Eid Mubarak to all our Muslim friends, brothers, and sisters! Yes, it has been a hard Ramadan this year filled with much sadness. Orlando, Ataturk, and now the holy city of Medina have all been attacked by violence. However, peace remains in our hearts for one another, love remains in our hearts for one another, friendship remains in our hearts for one another. Moving us all closer than ever: the true meaning of Islam. Salaam alaikum dear ones....
